International Meeting
 “Fundamental Problems of Solid State Ionics” (FPSSI),


dedicated to the memory of Professor Ukshe EA (founder of the first solid electrolyte laboratory in Russia), is held every two years in Chernogolovka at the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics RAS. FPSSI meetings are traditionally supported by the Russian Foundation of Basic Research, the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation and the RAS Scientific Council on Electrochemistry.
The FPSSI meeting is devoted to a relatively new field of science located at the intersection of solid state physics and chemistry, electronics and electrochemistry, crystallography and inorganic chemistry, materials science and energy. Despite the fact that ion conductivity was first discovered in the 19th century, extensive fundamental research in this area has been ongoing since the 60s of the last century.

The creation of a large number of new materials with high ionic conductivity, mixed electron-ionic conductors, the development and use of new methods for studying nanoscale materials and heterogeneous boundaries has led to a significant increase in both fundamental and applied work in this area.

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in superionic conductors and devices based on them, such as: fuel cells, batteries, supercapacitors, sensors for analyzing gas and water environments, etc.

The relevance of this trend is confirmed by the publication of a number of international journals (Ionics, Solid State Ionics, Solid State Electrochemistry, Solid State Communication, Sensors & Actuators, etc.) and regular conferences. The most significant international conferences in this field are: International Conference on Solid State Ionics – SSI, International Conference on Solid State Protonic Conductors – SSPC, International Symposium on Systems with Fast Ionic Transport – ISSFIT (in 2012, the 10th anniversary ISSFIT conference was held in Russia at the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Chernogolovka) and the International Conference “Fundamental Problems of Solid State Ionics”.

The scientific seminars “Solid State Ionics” have been held in our country since 1981 twice a year – in spring in Chernogolovka (Institute of New Chemical Problems of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR under the direction of Professor Ukshe E.A.) and in autumn in the Baltic States – in Riga (Institute of Solid State Physics, Latvian University) and in Vilnius (Vilnius University).

Thanks to these seminars, a community of scientists involved in ion transport issues has been organized. The traditions of these seminars were resumed in 1994, and the meetings of the series “Fundamental Problems of Solid State Ionics” began to take place every two years in Chernogolovka, as one of the leading research centers on this problem in Russia.
